In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. The recent stock market crash has caused a wide range of UK shares to trade on more attractive prices than at the start of the year. As such, there may be buying opportunities for ISA investors who can look beyond short-term risks to a likely long-term recovery for indexes such as the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250.With that in mind, here are two UK shares that appear to offer good value for money after their recent stock prices falls. Investing £2k, or any other amount, in them could lead to high returns in the coming years that helps to boost the size of your ISA portfolio.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Next: undervalued retailer after the market crashThe recent update from FTSE 100 retailer Next (LSE: NXT) showed it could offer good value for money after the market crash. The company’s second quarter performance was better than its own guidance, with store sales more robust than expected. It was also able to bring back warehouse capacity faster than anticipated to meet a larger proportion of online demand for its products.Looking ahead, further challenges could be ahead for the wider retail sector. Weak consumer confidence may mean it takes a prolonged period of time for demand to return to 2019 levels. However, Next’s online retail exposure could allow it to successfully adapt to changing consumer trends that may quicken as a result of the pandemic.Therefore, now could be the right time to buy a slice of the company. Its share price is still trading 18% lower that at the start of the year following the market crash. As such, it appears to offer a wide margin of safety for long-term ISA investors.British American Tobacco’s income appealAnother UK share that could be worth buying after the market crash is British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS). The company’s recent half-year results showed it’s performing relatively well in a weak economic environment. For example, its adjusted revenue increased by 2.4%, while adjusted operating profit moved 3.3% higher.The business is continuing to diversify into non-combustible categories, with 10% of its revenue now derived from that sector. This could allow it to capitalise on changing consumer trends, while continuing to experience rising revenue and profit from cigarette sales due to its pricing power.With British American Tobacco committed to a 65% dividend payout ratio, its income appeal could increase after the market crash. It currently has a strong dividend yield of around 8.5%. With its profitability rising, it could realistically deliver an inflation-beating dividend while, at the same time, providing a significantly higher income return than other stocks.As such, demand for its shares could increase in a low interest rate environment, which may lead to a rising price level over the long term.

SHARE NASCAR Tops 7 Million Miles of Racing on American Ethanol Blend By Andy Eubank – Mar 15, 2015 Home Energy NASCAR Tops 7 Million Miles of Racing on American Ethanol Blend Odometers are not standard equipment on the race cars competing in NASCAR but if they were, collectively they surpassed a momentous milestone over the weekend at Phoenix International Raceway. NASCAR began running Sunoco Green E15 in its three top national series back in 2011 and Saturday during the NASCAR XFINITY Series™ Axalta Faster. Tougher. Brighter. 200 race, NASCAR hit and surpassed 7 million miles of racing, the equivalent of almost 30 trips from the earth to the moon or 281 laps around the earth!NASCAR made the fuel change in conjunction with their NASCAR Green® Platform, the largest and most comprehensive recycling, tree planting and renewable energy programs in sports. Not only has the move to Sunoco Green E15 proven to be an environmentally beneficial decision, it’s actually boosted the performance of the race cars in all three national series – lowering emissions and increasing horsepower.“From our initial seamless transition to Sunoco Green E15, a 15 percent American-grown, American-made ethanol racing fuel blend in Daytona in 2011 to 7 million miles reached here at Phoenix International Raceway, NASCAR has shown under the most demanding competition that E15 is safe, reliable and it works,” said Dr. Michael Lynch, Vice President, NASCAR Green Innovation and STEM Platforms. “NASCAR fans are 80 percent more likely than non-fans to support the use of ethanol blends in their own car on the street, because they understand that NASCAR and our diligent race teams did our homework from the start with thousands of miles and hours of testing.”“NASCAR validates what a great performance fuel [E15] is,” said Tom Buis, CEO of Growth Energy. “If you meet with the teams and talk with the owners, they have noticed only increased horsepower, higher performance, and reduced emissions without a single issue when it comes to durability and dependability.” Buis added, “This partnership has been critical in showing the American consumer that if E15 performs in the most rigorous and demanding situations in motorsports, it’s clearly a safe, high performance reliable fuel that is good for American consumers who want a choice and savings at the pump.”“Thanks to countless miles of testing, research and collaboration with NASCAR, we were prepared to run Sunoco Green E15, a 15 percent ethanol fuel in our race cars and the transition was flawless,” said Richard Childress, Chairman and CEO of Richard Childress Racing. “We didn’t listen to the negative rhetoric about this, we did our own homework and testing and the switching of fuels has gone fantastic. It has also been very welcomed throughout NASCAR. Since this change took place, we have seen increased horsepower from a higher-octane ethanol fuel blend and decreased emissions. In our own internal tests at RCR, we used ethanol blends up to E30 and found no issues with that fuel, either. If you need any further proof, look no further than the 7 million miles NASCAR is about to complete.”“Drivers across the United States have a long and successful history with 10 percent ethanol blended fuel,” said Jon Holzfaster, a farmer from Nebraska and National Corn Growers Association Board member. “Frankly, they like the cost savings provided by ethanol and the fact it comes from family farmers. Automotive technology has changed and so have the needs of the public. Cars made since 2001 are designed to run on E15 and NASCAR has proven to be a great way to grow consumer awareness as E15 availability grows.” Facebook Twitter Previous articleAg Day, A Time to Come Together — or NotNext article7 Groups Sign Beef Checkoff MOU Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter SHARE

iStock/MattGush(NEW YORK) — A Brooklyn man who allegedly coughed on FBI agents and told them he had novel coronavirus, after the agents said they had confronted him about hoarding and selling medical equipment, has been arrested, according to the Justice Department.Prosecutors said 43-year-old Baruch Feldheim sought to take advantage of the COVID-19 crisis and equipment shortages at New York’s hospitals to make medical workers pay inflated prices for surgical masks, medical gowns and other Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). On Sunday, FBI agents said they approached Feldheim at his home after observing several individuals walking away from his door with boxes that they believed contained medical equipment.“After identifying themselves as FBI agents, they told Feldheim that they wanted to stay a distance away from him given concerns over the spread of Coronavirus,” the DOJ said in a statement. “When the agents were within four to five feet of him, Feldheim allegedly coughed in their direction without covering his mouth.”Feldheim then told the agents he was infected with COVID-19, according to DOJ.As a result, Feldheim was arrested and charged with assaulting a federal officer, as well as making false statements after prosecutors said he repeatedly lied about his possession and sale of the equipment. He has not yet made his initial appearance before a judge or entered a plea to the charges, and as of Monday evening did not have a lawyer listed on the district court’s docket.The arrest follows a nationwide campaign encouraged by the DOJ and FBI to crack down on those who may seek to use the current national emergency to hoard much-needed medical supplies and sell them at prices far above market value.Agents accused Feldheim of doing so on multiple occasions.According to the criminal complaint against him, Feldheim agreed to sell a New Jersey doctor “approximately 1,000 N95 masks” and other materials for $12,000, “an approximately 700 percent markup from the normal price,” prosecutors said. When Feldheim told the doctor the location of the materials, the man went to a repair shop that held enough medical supplies “to outfit an entire hospital,” the Justice Department said.Agents also alleged in a separate instance that Feldheim offered to sell a nurse “a quantity of surgical gowns,” and days later received a shipment from Canada containing “eight pallets of medical facemasks.”The Justice Department urges Americans who suspect coronavirus fraud, hoarding or price-gouging to contact the National Center for Disaster Fraud’s National Hotline at (866) 720-5721 or e-mail [email protected] Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

UK companies explore energy opportunities in the Egyptian market. (Credit: Crown copyright) The UK Department for International Trade (DIT), in partnership with the Scottish Development International (SDI) organised the first virtual energy event to explore business opportunities for UK-Scottish companies in Egypt’s transition to net zero, as part of UK’s endeavour to support Egypt in its energy reform program.Egypt is the largest non-OPEC oil producer in Africa, as well as the continent’s second largest natural gas producer. With Egypt currently implementing the Petroleum Sector’s Modernisation Project, aiming at a sustainable development of the petroleum sector, UK companies are keen to get involved in the many business opportunities presented.More than 100 attendees joined the webinar, among them the British Ambassador to Egypt, Sir Geoffrey Adams, who delivered an opening speech and a country economic and security briefing. Egypt’s Undersecretary of the Ministry of Petroleum’s Technical Office, Osama Mobarez, also attended the event and gave an overview of Egypt’s energy priorities. In addition, the CEO of the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation, Eng. Abed Ezz El Regal, participated and highlighted the important opportunities in Egypt’s oil and gas project pipeline.The British Egyptian Business Association, the Egyptian British Chamber of Commerce and the Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce have all promoted the event to their members alongside the Department for International Trade and Scottish Development International. The event demonstrated the level of enthusiasm amongst the participants from both the UK and Egypt to trigger a new era in Energy Transition.British Ambassador to Egypt, Sir Geoffrey Adams, said:“I was delighted to join this webinar today, and to thank everyone involved in putting it together. I spoke about the direction we have received from the President of Egypt and the Prime Minister of the UK to boost as much as we can the relations between our two countries, not least in the field of trade and investment; and I encouraged UK companies to take advantage of the opportunities here in Egypt, particularly as it reforms its energy markets and heads towards net zero.”Undersecretary – Minister’s Technical Office, Ministry of Petroleum & Mineral Resources, Osama Mobarez said: > Egypt and the UK enjoy longstanding ties with special strategic partnerships in the oil and gas sector. The Egyptian Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources has adopted several reforms and policies to ensure energy security, financial stability and enhance the investment environment to avail more opportunities. These reforms have resulted in several successes providing more opportunities to our partners and driving further achievements.SDI’s Regional Manager for Africa and Middle East, Andrew Monaghan stated: ‘“It has been a great pleasure to co-present this successful event with our Egyptian partners and our colleagues in DIT. Over the last 50 years of exploration and production in the North Sea, Aberdeen in Scotland has gained prestige as the oil and gas capital of Europe, and with justification, our Subsea engineering skills lead the world. The global energy industry is undergoing a massive transformation, from fossil fuels to renewables, and the UK is at the forefront of that transformation, as the recently released report by Aberdeen-based Oil & Gas Technology Centre on UK’s journey toward a net-zero energy future excellently portrays. It is a journey we invite our Egyptian partners to take with us.” Source: Company Press Release UK-Scottish companies explore business opportunities in Egypt as the country transitions to net zero
by Elen Griffiths“I’m losing my memory, saving my face…” is the refrain of KT Tunstall’s newly released single, ‘Saving My Face’. “I’m all out of love, all out of faith,” she sings powerfully, “I would give everything, just for a taste”. For a taste of what though? These predictably cryptic lyrics make this song one of Tunstall’s edgy-yet-mainstream songs, placed firmly in the pop genre by the strong beat and guitar riffs. Tunstall first broke into the music scene with her song ‘Black Horse and the Cherry Tree’, described by her website as a ‘one-woman blues-stomp,’ which wooed the public with its quirky, folksy lyrics and upbeat pace. By comparison, Tunstall’s new song is disappointingly unoriginal; it sounds much like the other mediocre offerings on her first album.Yet that is what many listeners will like about it: ‘Saving My Face’ intertwines Tunstall’s very distinctive voice with that strong beat, predictably crescendoing to a powerful chorus at the end. People who really enjoyed Tunstall’s previous albums will have difficulty finding fault with this track; but it is too similar, and the lyrics too predictably edgy, to really hail it as a new and exciting song.
The Oxford Union will be implementing a new queueing system for Tuesday’s ‘Must Rhodes Fall’ debate and other popular events this term in response to issues with the European Union debate in Michaelmas.Jack Lennard, press officer for the Union said, “The Oxford Union regularly hosts some of the most fascinating and appealing discussions and speakers in Oxford. After listening to feedback from the last term, we made it clear that we intended to overhaul access protocols for our more popular events. With this new queueing system, we hope to give our members a fairer chance to see who they want than ever before. We hope to fully monitor the success of this trial, and work with our members to find a permanent solution, whether this system or a variation, that achieves this goal.”Under the new system, 200 free tickets will be available for collection from 11am the day before the event, with every member entitled to pick up a ticket for themselves and two other members. In order to pick up tickets for another member, one must have the other person’s membership card with one.250 seats will still be available on a first-come-first-served basis the evening of the event itself.If a ticket holder is not in her seat by 7.30pm, her place will be given to someone else in the queue—with updates on the size of the queue to be regularly provided on the Facebook event page.Jake Olenick, a first year Physics and Philosophy student at Exeter, told Cherwell that he thinks the changes will be positive, saying, “[The new system] seems like a pretty good idea to me. One of the biggest problems on the EU debate queue was one person standing in for a bunch of others, but with this system you can only get a spot for up to 2 other people, so it limits that sort of problem. Overall, I’m thinking it’ll be a much better queue than last time.”
